Objectives

Following an 18-month remediation to remove contaminates from the Macalloy site, Shipyard Creek Associates announced plans to redevelop 114 acres of the property for maritime-related use. Davis & Floyd was engaged as the prime designer for the site's master plan.

Scope

Water facility design consisted of approximately 3,700 feet of 8-inch line and 525 feet of 6-inch line

Designed improvements to site's access road

Designed intersection improvements to allow for ingress and egress of trucks

Extensive permitting including SCDHEC Water & Wastewater Construction, OCRM Land Disturbance, and OCRM Coastal Zone Consistency Certification

Challenges

Former site of a ferrochromium alloy smelting plant that operated from 1941 - 1998

Site placed on the EPA Superfund program's National Priority List (NPL) in 2000 due to contaminates in groundwater and soil

Permits included engineering controls as required by the site's Record of Decision

Due to on-site contamination, groundwater pretreatment and discharge to North Charleston Sewer District were required and excavated material had to remain on-site

Outcome

A successful redevelopment to a key track of real estate positioned to support the region's critical port industry.
